Press Releases - A Caribbean Address or Vacation at a fraction of the price
(Press Release September 2010)
Panama offers an exotic destination that traditional Caribbean destinations can’t touch
Panama is not a common reference point for the allure of Caribbean islands such as Turks and Caicos, St. Thomas, St. Lucia or Antigua. But those who vacation or invest in these traditional Caribbean destinations should consider the less known islands of Bocas del Toro, Panama. Thirty miles from the boarder of Costa Rica, the beaches here are golden sandy slices of paradise fringed by palm trees and emerald rainforest. The island archipelago of Bocas del Toro IS part of the Caribbean and it has the added benefit of being part of that economic dynamo that is the country of Panama. Panama has been consistently rated the fastest growing economy in Latin/Central America by the Latin Business Chronicle and its stability, geographical attributes, dollarized economy and popular pensionado program for retirees are making it a top retirement destination for Americans and Europeans seeking a warmer climate and where their retirement dollars can go further.
Bastimentos Island is the crown jewel among the islands in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago and it features world class beaches, the Bastimentos National Marine park (with its protected rainforest and coral reefs) and the Red Frog Beach Rainforest Resort & Marina. This resort is special in that its proximity to natural amenities and range of adventure offerings makes it the ideal springboard for a great vacation or retirement location. Unlike other Panama Resorts on Panama’s mainland, Red Frog Beach is a true Caribbean Island Resort Community made of boaters, retirees, and vacationers. The resort features real estate prices (from luxury villas to jungle lodges) at just a fraction (up to 75% less) of similar Caribbean island properties. Such reduced prices make the value proposition even better when Panama’s cost of basic services ($4.00 haircuts, $30.00 hotel rooms, $1.00 taxi rides) come into play.
The Red Frog Beach Resort can currently accommodate guests in beautiful homes with private pools. There are also two restaurants, Marina, Jungle Trails, an expansive open-air jungle lounge and beach activity center. The onsite travel staff can coordinate dozens of tours and activities throughout the Island Archipelago – whether you like to surf, relax on the beach, fly through the trees on a zipline or take an underground island cave tour – this island destination has something for everyone. The Resort is currently welcoming tourists, tour operators, real estate brokers, travel agents, and yachts and sailboats to visit Isla Bastimentos.
The Red Frog Beach Resort is currently featuring monthly “Exploration Tours” that feature a sales tour of the properties, a boat tour featuring highlights of the archipelago and free tickets to the Bastimentos Sky Canopy Zipline tour. These two night/three day packages are all-inclusive and give the visitor a taste of living in a luxury villa complete with private pool. Villas accommodate 2-6 guests so it is possible to travel with other interested parties. Bring some friends or relatives and create a family vacation out of the experience. Vacation extension options are available.More information can be found by visiting: www.redfrogbeach.com.
